Spicy Yogurt Cilantro Dip

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

A dip can easily make a usual meal a little different for the day. It’s something yummy to have while you snack on raw vegetables or even accompanying a meal with steamed vegetables. It is quick to make and useful when you have an excess of something. In this case, I had lots of cilantro that was going to mush soon.


  • 1 cup Plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 garlic clove

  • Handful of cilantro

  • Salt + pepper to taste

  • Splash of cayenne (However much you deem suitable to your spicy radar)

  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil

  • 1/2 a lime

  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin



  • Put the Greek yogurt in a deep bowl

  • Cut up all the cilantro small as possible, with or without the stems (depends on your preference)

  • Add the cilantro to the yogurt along with the cumin, olive oil, cayenne, salt, and pepper

  • Squeeze half a lime into the bowl

  • Dice a clove of garlic and very lightly cook it in a pan with some olive oil. I take if off the heat as soon as it starts browning

  • While the garlic is cooking mix everything together in the bowl

  • Once the garlic is ready, add it into the bowl, and mix everything again

Try it out to see if you’d like to add a bit more of any ingredient. I had to add a bit more of cayenne to get the spiciness I wanted.

Serve as a side with some raw vegetables, add on top of some steamed broccoli, or mix with some chicken! Whatever you choose to pair this dip with I hope you enjoy it and know that it's always possible to add any other herbs + spices you want!

Keeping it spicy and simple,
